What I liked

Strong performances by the entire cast, handling some disturbing material with skill.

What I didn't like

There was nothing to dislike.

My overall impression

This may end up being one of my favorite plays at Fringe this year. Dark, funny, very disturbing. Set in a fraternity house days after a pledge has committed suicide, each character seems to be wrestling with some aspect of “how do I become an adult?”

For one female character, that means moving on from an unpleasant encounter that may threaten relationships for the rest of her life. For some of the characters, it is obvious that massive insecurity reigns behind the bravado of womanizing, drinking, and fighting. Some of the guys may be just trying to compensate for insecurity, others actually buy into the idea that this is manhood. Fascinating stuff to watch unfold.
